Worm Farmers Go Legit

A little bit of worm news is all you get today. But it’s good news, anyway: Worm growers in Georgia are going through a process to be designated as farmers by the legislature. The designation makes them eligible for crop insurance.

Makes perfect sense to me. Worms are a risky venture, as subject to the whims of nature as any field of corn or soybean, and twice as likely to pack up and move on under their own power if they’re not happy with the conditions at home. A little crop insurance is a prudent investment when you’re dealing with worms.

I’ll keep you posted.
